Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is for my party to go well, as I may have bitten off more than I can chew. Don’t worry, I’ve got the nosh and tipples covered, but I simply haven’t had time to shop for my outfit. I could really use your help in that department. I’ve prepared a list (I am nothing if not organized), let me know what you think.

Lots of love,
The Hostess with the Mostest

TEA PARTY

A well-dressed table is just as important as the finely made gourmet treats served.

PRETTY PERFECT

Fit-and-flare cuts make for elegant cocktail party dress choices. Plus, they make way for you to flash glittery high heels with every step.

ACCESSORIES ARE KEY

An oversized cat pendant is an unexpected rarity, but every hostess worth her salt owns a double strand of pearls.

All it takes is an out-of-the-box accessory to turn a simple outfit into an eye-catching one.

PARTY SHOES

If running around the party or dancing is in order, strike a balance between fashion and function with a comfy pair of low heels, in glossy red leather with an embellished heel, no less.

STAY ON POINT

After all the preparations are done, slip on those pointed toe pumps in a bold bright hue.

BEST FACE FORWARD

Should you be a tad too exhausted to maintain a scintillating level of conversation, let your jewellery do the talking.
